Unique Ways to Remember Loved Ones at Your Wedding

Unique Ways to Remember Loved Ones at Your Wedding
August 20, 2020

It’s never easy to spend important life moments (such as a wedding) without those friends and family members that you hold so close to your heart, which is why it’s such a nice gesture to set aside a space at your ceremony, social hour or reception to honor deceased loved ones at your wedding by remembering their spirit, life, and love. Here are a few ideas you may want to consider.


  Stairway to Heaven (Memory Ladder)

This unique DIY project that can serve as a beautiful reminder of loved ones no longer with you on your wedding day is a ‘Stairway to heaven’. Decorate a wooden step ladder with photos, sentimental items and wedding décor that can be placed in the cocktail hour area and moved to the reception for all to see.

Memory Tree

Suspend photos from the branches or trunk of a tree in a quiet area where you and your guests can reflect and reminisce on happy memories. You could make or rent a faux blossom tree with lighting for an indoor wedding or if you’re holding an outdoors celebration, use a tree outside your venue.

Wedding Photo Table

Another popular way to remember loved ones at weddings is to collect photographs of couples within the family captured on their own special days. When placed together, this offers a wonderful wedding timeline of your family, the love stories that live on and the ever evolving face of fashion.  

 Heirlooms and accessories

From bouquet charms to a pair of vintage earrings, hankie or cuff links passed down the generations, there are a many ways to keep your loved ones close by throughout the day.


Keep loved ones you've lost close to your heart on your special day with a memorial wedding sign. Place this memorial wedding sign on a table with photos of beloved family members who couldn't attend your wedding day, but will be there in spirit.  “We know you would be here today, if heaven weren’t so far away”
